Frank Vogel, the head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, was interviewed on the matter regarding the role of the team’s newcomer DeAndre Jordan during the coming season.

He revealed that every player has accepted whatever role they’ll have on the court, including the 33-year-old center.

“Everybody on this team knows coming into this group that whatever needs to happen for our team to win a championship, they have to be bought into that,” Vogel said. “That’s the minimum requirement for playing for the LA Lakers. And sometimes that does mean not playing. Everybody understands that.

“DJ has been nothing but a first-class attitude for everything that we’re trying to do and I think he’s on board with everybody else that whatever the team needs, that’s what they’ll be on board with.”
